Chunk-A-Poo for you

Pin It People have been asking.

After all, they have needs…as do I.

As of late, I’ve found that several people have been craving cookie dough—Chunk-A-Poo dough to be exact. Of course, I can’t blame them…after all; I love the stuff myself and would not be opposed to making a nice, large batch of it and eating a bit without even cooking it.

Take that back—eating most of it without cooking it.

What can I say? I love the stuff, like I love to breathe.

I have found that I usually only make this delicacy about once every 4 weeks or so; however, there seems to be a ‘demand’ from various friends, and one batch tends to change into two just so that enough people can get a little baggie of it.

I was talking to a dear friend recently who made the observation, “If there are enough people who want the stuff, why don’t you just sell it?”

Sell it? To real people?

Now, I don’t want to make this into a weekly drudgery where I am feeling obligated to make it all the time; however, I’ve decided—for the time being—to make a few batches each week. To be honest, I don’t know how many I’ll make each week…at least not yet. I’m going to put them in gallon-sized plastic freezer bags, and put them in the fridge or freezer. It is there that they’ll sit and wait until somebody wants them. When that week’s supply is gone…it’s gone. I’ll do it again the following week.

So, how do I get one?

Good question!

Either make a comment on this post or send an email to teachinfourth@gmail.com. Be sure to include something in the subject line like, ‘Chunk-A-Poo.’ I’ll let you know on this post when those I’ve made for the week are gone—I think I’ll make 4 or 5 and see how this goes at first. I’ll decide from there how I’ll handle it in the future.

Hey, I still have a few questions…

Fire away.

Are these free?

Well, no. Unless the stores start giving away all the ingredients, this dough will not be either (I know, what was I thinking?). Also, it takes time to get the stuff together and make it. Therefore, I’ve decided to let the batches go for $11 each. That way, the several hours it will take each week to make them will be worth it. Also, I won’t go into debt purchasing the ‘secret’ ingredients—after all, there are several of them.

What if I really have a need and you’ve run out for the week?

Bummer. Sorry to hear that. Don’t worry though, there’ll always be another Saturday and I’ll make a few more then—provided I’m not out of town on a photographic expedition of some type. If you emailed (or commented) as the first person after the last batch is sold, you’ll be on the top of the list for the next week.

How many cookies does this batch really make?

To be honest, I have no idea. Most of it is consumed as just dough (I’m pretty sure) so I’ve never really found the answer to that question. However, I am pretty sure that it’ll make anywhere from 80 - 95 cookies—depending on the size you make them.

What if nobody wants to buy this stuff from you?

I’m not really that worried, to be honest…if they doesn’t sell, no big deal. Nobody can’t say that I didn’t offer it up, and I’ll still provide it on a ‘as needed’ basis for those who are die-hards.

Do you ship the stuff?

No…sorry. Your address has to be local. That way, I can either drop it off or you can pick it up. I haven’t decided on the delivery mode as of yet…if you live in Provo, I’ll probably deliver, someplace else…you will most likely need to come to me.

Do you provide the Rolos for the center of the cookies?

No. I could only do that if I charged more…I know, those aren’t free either, are they? Curse those grocery stores!

When are you going to start doing this?

This afternoon. I’m going to lunch with a group of friends and will check back on my email when I’ve returned. Like I said earlier—I plan to make about 5 batches today.

Well, I guess that’s it…after all, I have nothing else to say on the matter—for now.

Look at this face :(

That's my sad face because I don't live locally.

Ever thought of moving to Arizona? Lots of places to visit to photograph. Lots of kids to be taught and more importantly, lots of cookies to make and you'd be LOCAL!

And then, my face would be this :)

MM, cookie dough. If eating that stuff was a sin, I would be a big time sinner!

The dough is gone. I'll do it again next weekend.

ME - If you only lived closer...I have visited Arizona before, but I don't think I would move there; it's a bit too hot for my taste. Of course, I'd love to hike in the Superstition Mountains.

Trevor - Just call me a sinner...

Gerb - You are in.

Ryan - Got you covered.

Jean Jones said...

You mean some people actualy cook the dough? LOL! It is tradition at our house that mom gets a small bowl of all cake batter before they bake the cake(same with brownie batter too) and Choc. chip cookies are best comsumed raw too! Any way someone like me way of here can make these chunk-a-poo cookies? Please?!

Martha said...

Oh, that's just TORTURE! I think a recipe needs to be shared...how else can someone (like me) who's not local (I'm way back here in OHIO) ever enjoy your cookies? Anything I can do to convince you?

Stephen T said...

I am curious what is in this highly sought-after cookie dough. Is there any nuts or coconut?

grinNberrett said...

if I bought you the ingredients, would it still cost me $11 for you to make them?

Teachinfourth said...

Jean - I've heard of a few folks like that...strange, isn't it?

Martha - I'm a horrible person.

Stephen - Nuts.

G&B - It'll cost you $15...just because.
